Replaced door handle after 3 years of super glue

  • Customer: Todd from Benicia CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

The instructions were great!!! It was difficult to take the face plate off without breaking the nibs off that hold it in place. Other then that the only issue I had was removing the broken piece that was cemented in place by the years of super glue. Had to drill it out and almost drilled out the receiver plate to hold the screw/handle in place. I have to say this saved me $400 because I was just about to buy a new microwave because the broken door handle had driven me crazy over the last 3 years.
